A new version of EXMARaLDA has been released. It can be downloaded free of
charge from


EXMARaLDA is a system for creating, managing, analyzing and disseminating
spoken language corpora:

The EXMARaLDA Partitur-Editor (version 1.4.3.) is a tool for creating,
editing and outputting multi-level, audio- or video-aligned transcriptions
in musical score notation. It provides import and export filters for the
formats of many other tools (Praat, ELAN, CLAN, among others) and for
various presentation formats.

The EXMARaLDA Corpus Manager (version 1.5.5.) is a tool for bundling
transcriptions into corpora, managing metadata about communications and
speakers and filtering transcriptions according to their metadata.
EXAKT (version 0.6) , the EXMARaLDA Analysis and Concordance Tool, is a
tool for querying EXMARaLDA corpora. It extends the functionality of a KWIC
concordancer with additional features that are important for the analysis
of spoken language, such as: the possibility to play back the part of the
audio or video signal corresponding to a search result, filtering search
results according to speaker and communication metadata, manual annotation
of search results, etc.

All EXMARaLDA tools are programmed in Java and will run on Windows,
Macintosh and Linux Operating systems.

The EXMARaLDA demo corpus at


containing transcription examples in several languages, provides a quick
impression of the system's capabilities.

The development of the system is ongoing; we appreciate your feedback.
